Black Wolf Turbo 240 Tent
How to set up & pack away
Details & Specs
The Turbo 240 is an easy pitch tent that is perfect for those couples or small families who like to stay on the move when they get out and about. The Black Wolf Turbo canvas range is built for tough Aussie conditions, so this tent will be able to keep up with your active outdoor lifestyle.
This newly updated range has tape sealed seams where the floor and tent wall meet, and the fly has wider corners to guard against water leakage. The siliconised polyester floor is easy to roll which makes this tent even simpler to set up and more importantly - pack up. And with extra reinforcing along the roof poles, your turbo will have added sturdiness in windy conditions.
The three-pole awning can be turned into an extended living area with optional panels, or it can be sectioned off with an optional screen room for a fully enclosed space. The PVC storm flaps at the bottom of the optional front and side panels will help keep your awning dry in wet weather, and the zips and Velcro on the panels attach to the fly to allow for tape sealing for added water protection.
This model is perfect for extended trips when you’re on the move a lot, as it’s easy to set up and can withstand all kinds of weather.

Hi i cant stand plastic tents which is the coolest tent and well vented Blackwolf /oztent /De arche 260

All of these tents have lots of options for ventilation. The Safari has side and rear windows with built-in window cover gussets, so you can stay dry in wet weather where you need ventilation, they also feature ground vents which are great to help with airflow. The Turbo 240 tents have gusseted side windows, and a dual later front door, they are also the only one of these tents to feature a fly layer, which helps to reduce internal temperature and reduces condensation. The Oztent RV tents also have side and rear windows, so there is plenty of ventilation, however, they're not gusseted, so are less likely to be able to keep you dry if you're in need of airflow. Overall the Turbo Tent is probably the pick of the options for keeping cool and ventilated in a variety of conditions.

Can I buy a Black Wolf 240 awning on its own, without the tent?1 answer
Hi we have an older Black wolf 240 with the 2 pole awning which has always been a bit of a problem in windy condtions. Is it possible to buy a new 3 pol awning separately and keep the original tent, still in vg condition despite many years of service. If so how much would the awning alone be and how long would it take to arrive? We plan to go away on July 26, Thanks.

Unfortunately not, the newer three-pole awning design isn't able to be retro-fitted to an older model, and Blackwolf don't make them as a separate item.

Best fit stretcher1 answer
As this tent has sloped walls, can you please advise what the best fit stretcher would be for this tent without touching the walls at all (rain and condensation will certainly wet the sleeping bags due to wet walls), ideally have 5 cm gap at both ends of the stretcher? Kind regards
For the Turbo 240 you'd need to reduce the available length by about 30cm for a 45cm high stretcher, so most jumbo-sized stretchers will fit whilst just touching the sides.
If you want a bit more space and don't need a jumbo stretcher, go for something like the Oztent Goanna Stretcher (https://www.snowys.com.au/goanna-stretcher) which at 40cm height and 190cm length will give you a good buffer at each end.

is this tent waterproofed without the flysheet and awning?1 answer
is this tent waterproofed without the flysheet and awning? Can we just put the inner tent for a quick overnight sleep and be waterproofed?

The Black Wolf Turbo 240 Tent is designed to be set up complete with flysheet and awning. It is not recommended to set up the tent sans fly as the structural stability of the tent comes from the fly and guys ropes attached to the fly. Black Wolf do a Turbo Touring Cap Fly that can be handy for quick overnight set up.

Canvas seasoning required for black wolf turbo tents?1 answer
Hi, I've been reading on the black wolf turbo tents on camping forums.
Some people talk about 'seasoning' their new black wolf canvas tent, by soaking the stitched areas in water and letting the tent dry, repeating this process several times. The idea is that by soaking the fabric in water, the pinholes from stitching the canvas will reduce, thereby making the tent more waterproof.
Others say that the black wolf tents don't need to be seasoned as they are pre-seasoned already or don't require seasoning at all.
Can you please clarify this for me? Many thanks, Rob

Black Wolf now seam seal most of their canvas products like the Black Wolf Turbo 240 Tent so seasoning it probably isn't necessary but it would do absolutely no harm if you chose to still season it.

If a warranty claim is required, how do we access it? Is it necessary to send it in or can we go to a store somewhere?

Accessories question1 answer
Hey Snowys Team,
We have got a good kit out of the black wolf turbo 240 tent accessories now but need a better way to transport them. We are moving to carrying all the tent stuff on the roof platform so what a bag that will store it all / protect them. So we are after a bag that will store ground sheet, front wall and 2x delux walls. What would you suggest? Also if we get the fly room will that fit in the same bag or would you suggest getting a bigger one?

If you want to put a Turbo 240 groundsheet, two side panels, a front wall and a screen room on a roof platform then we would recommend something like the Darche Nero Bag as it's waterproof.
The Nero 240 bag is 145L x 26W x 26H cm, so it should fit the Turbo awning screen room (65L x 22W x 14H cm), 240 groundsheet (66L x 16W x 16H cm) plus the panels and front wall which don't take up much space.
There's also the option of the Nero 190 bag, which is 115L x 45W x 45H cm so a little shorter but wider in circumference - either should fit everything listed, just go with what fits in with the rest of your set up.
